Christmas Tree Farm (and a few decorations)

ben and tree farm
On Tuesday we went to the Christmas tree farm in Tyler to get our tree.  I have never been to a place where you get to cut down your own tree- we have only done the nursery where its already cut.  This was a whole new experience and, as a dorky holiday lover, it was everything we dreamed of.

we all walked around for a while to find the one we wanted to get.  Since our house is pretty small, we decided on smaller sized tree (I know, this is so boring, but the farm is really so cool!)
Then, they gave Jeff the saw and he chopped it down!! we are so Paul Bunyan over here.

Then we got to go on a little hayride with our tree to get it all wrapped up.

Then we went home and decorated with our dorky yarn ornaments.  They are all just infatuated with the tree and I can not keep them away from the ornaments.  I want to get candy canes, but I feel like they will eat them when we all go to sleep...

My mom got me this fantastic garland and I copied the trees flat out from Jennifer's shower by Aimee. I just love them.
I have a few more things to put up, but I am just so excited for the holidays decor that is starting throughout my house!

I love going to a tree farm to pick out our Christmas tree -- we used to do that when I was younger, but I haven't done it in years! So fun!!

And I love your Christmas decorations! How did you do the trees on your mantle?
